Velop is Pure Wi‑Fi Freedom
Traditional routers may not reach the far corners of your home. But Velop nodes can be placed anywhere to provide you with full-strength Wi‑Fi that's perfect for your unique situation.

Fits Every Home Size and Shape
Velop immerses you in Wi‑Fi no matter what type of home you live in. It is modular and available in a one, two or three pack. This gives you the freedom to place additional nodes to reach difficult spots like the basement or backyard for flawless Wi‑Fi everywhere.

100% Wi‑Fi Mesh Network Signal
A Velop modular Wi‑Fi mesh system outperforms traditional routers and range extenders giving you 100% seamless Wi‑Fi without lag or buffering. With other Wi‑Fi, the signal degrades as you move farther away from the router, leaving you susceptible to dropped connections. Velop gives you full-strength Wi‑Fi everywhere.

Big thumbs up for this, I had nothing but trouble with my home WiFi until I got this

Better than the BT offering but I'd get POE instead so there is no power adapters.
Already have a Tenda MW6, and happy with it except some wireless cameras and devices such as smart washing machines and robot vacuums don't like connecting to it. Anyone used similar devices with this mesh system or is that an issue with all meshes?

More specifically - WL cams don't like the security protocol the MW6 uses and I can't change it. The smart devices don't like the 5ghz bandwidth and the MW6 doesn't specify between 2.4ghz and 5ghz it seems.

TIA!

Can you explain this to me please? What's POE?

Power Over Ethernet, basically the network cable both powers it and connects the access points together. No PSU needed the power comes from the network cable itself. Much much faster too, I can get 900mbs over my access points.

Have a look at Ubiquiti access point for example. Almost enterprise level of features for not much more than this.
Great code
I believe you can setup Poe for these yourself based on a review I read. I’ll try it sometime. Got a set of these and they’re great. I’ve got a 300mb line, but to get that wirelessly, or close to it I need to sort out a bit of Ethernet around my house. Not necessary... I still get around 120mbps everywhere with these as they are, but they’re capable of so much more. I’ll get around 280 wirelessly once I’ve sorted the ethernet. Anyway.... they’re awesome.
how do I get that voucher? Can't see it on their website.

I still don't really get it. I googled them things, they just look like black boxes with ethernet ports. Do they plug I to the wall? Or do I need to be trailing ethernet cables around the house?

The principle is there is no power adapters required, the power comes via the ethernet cable via either poe injectors or a poe switch, I get 900mbs from mine.

I placed my access points on the ceiling inside a cupboard on each floor out of site but every installation is different, however you choose to get ethernet to the access point it doesn't also require a power plug.

Hoping you can help as you sound like you know your stuff.

Just got giga broadband with two Linksys velop routers. When I use the Linksys app to check my speed, it gets 900+. But when I plug in ethernet from router to my pc, I get much lower speeds of 2-300. My motherboard can definitely handle 1gig so it's not that. I can't figure out what's slowing it down.

Even WiFi on all my devices next to the router gets around 150 on 5ghz.

You say two routers, how are they connected together? Are you plugging into the router thats attached to the incoming line or the remote one?

Well, apologies. One router and one extender. One is directly plugged into modem with the supplied ethernet. It's in the slot with the white line above the port.

The second node, though irrelevant to my issue, is in the room next door, plugged in to a socket so it acts as an extender. No direct connection to first node, other than WiFi.

So ethernet comes out of modem into Velop then a second cable back out of Velop into PC?

Is this purely Internet speed that's reduced?
Gigabit should be capable of pulling a large file accross the Internal network at around 110Mb/s have you tried getting a movie or similar to see if the internal network is performing as expected?

No, that's one thing I haven't tried. So I shouldn't worry if my speed test is lower than expected but the file downloads at 110?

I'll try find a large file from a source where there's no throttling.

I suggested that to assertain if the bottleneck is on LAN or WAN side.

I see. Will give that a try! Thank you
